First up we went to my nephews basketball game. Have you ever been to an 8 year olds' basketball game? It is so funny. It was a nail biter and went to the last second. Brooks scored 4 points!
B & B with their "Auburn" aunts & uncles.
I had to tie dye some shirts for our team to wear in an upcoming 5k and Brooks helped. He has wanted to learn how to tie dye "his whole life". It was pretty fun and now he is ready to tie dye some more shirts.
We also made the bouncy balls I mentioned Friday but I forgot to take pics. They worked out ok. The smaller the better. It was still cool to play with the borax and glue.
Eric's brother and his family also live in my hometown so we spent some time with them too! CB decided I needed my nails done. This was about 1/4 of the nail polishes she has!
With all of the choices, it was too hard for me to make a color selection. She decided I needed green with silver dots. It was stunning. We also played Play Doh. I used a metallic gold and made a pretty ring.
CB stamped the Dora pendant out of metallic silver Play Doh and I made the gold necklace and bracelet to wear them on. Pretty cool if I say so myself, but I should still keep my day job.
Of course with a week old baby around there was a lot of snuggling!
Yesterday was the main reason we all went home. Nana's Sunday Lunch. My Nana always made Sunday lunch but has recently "retired" from the position. She said the next time we all came home she would cook. It was such a special treat!!!!!!! Back then we could all fit at one table, now the fam has 5 more members we we had to split up. Baron assigns all of the seats.
My parents' dog Zeb also loves to go to Nana's on Sunday. He is 14 years old (!) and loves when we come home because he gets to go into our bedrooms. He loves to get a tan beside my bed.
We've developed a bad habit, stopping at Krispy Kreme donuts on the way home. But with all of that good food you have to load up on caffeine and sugar to stay awake for 3 1/2 hours. Who can resist heart donuts?!
Apparently not Claire.
Ok so if you made it through all of that I have a trick for you. I forgot to take my camera home so I only have phone pics from the weekend. They are all pretty crappy, but Instagramed them to make it look like I took crappy pics on purpose.
Did you know that you can use Instagram on "airplane mode" and it won't publish pics to your feed? One thing I didn't like about Instagram was that every pic I wanted to "edit" was published and I didn't want all of them published. Now it isn't a problem. This is how your "feed" will look. The pic won't show up on the live feed but it is in your phone pictures!
